I’m not a huge coffee drinker.
Morning energy is key though.
Since having my morning cocktail everyday, I’ve simply not craved coffee. Combine that with my mental block for some reason I think coffee takes far too much effort to make (yet I will spend time making breakfasts like this… no logic, I know), and I rarely make coffee.
Anyway, I decided to make coffee on Monday morning (I was still dragging from the post-Blend excitement!). when I do prepare coffee, I always make extra to have during the week. With my leftover coffee, I make things like Tiramisu parfaits and pancakes!
This pancake creation hit all the high points when it come to breakfast: it is possible to have your bacon, eggs, and coffee all in one bite!
It may be a little strange. It definitely is a lot good! We all know how I like my waffles at Waffle House. That may not be the healthiest way to eat breakfast, but this creation is one you can feel good about.
Fluffy, protein-rich cakes made silky with coconut flour. These were laced with mocha coffee goodness and filled with blueberries that burst in your mouth. Their syrup is a delicious egg yolk that pops with flavorful bite of bacon sprinkles. Breakfast porn at its best!
- 2 T raw oatmeal
- 1 T coconut flour
- 1/2 scoop (10g) protein powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp no-salt baking powder
- 2 T egg whites
- 1/4 cup brewed coffee (I used a mocha flavor)
- 1/4 tsp maple extract
- 6-8 drops vanilla liquid stevia
- Optional: blueberries, runny egg, bacon sprinkles
In a small bowl, stir together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir to combine.
Heat pan over med-high, spoon batter onto pan, and cook until done (~3-4 mins each side). Add blueberries half way through, if using.
While your pancakes are cooking, prepare your toppings. I amped up the #strangebutgood with a runny egg and bacon “sprinkles.” The egg rocks because the yolk becomes your pancake syrup!
